Kindle Fire Fees - Is there a monthly charge?

goldham
My current Kindle does not cost me anything but recharging it at the wall outlet. Will the new Fire have a subscription fee similar to my cell phone? I know about premium service charges for the movies.

    It doesn't have a 3G Connection so there is no Data Plan required and hence no Monthly fee.

    No monthly fees to use Amazon's services. There are no Amazon services other than putting the customer in touch with a seller and taking a piece of the selling/purchase price. It is a great service, although I would rather pay a monthly fee and get the services for free. I bought my first Kindle about 6 or so years ago. I believe I paid $2-3 hundred for it. Since then I bought a second generation Kindle, and a DX a little after that(which still sells for a little less then $3-4 hundred.
    I bought the 3rd generation when they first came out. So, $4-5 hundred (probably more). I now have over 500 books. I have about 15 or so free and .99 books. I've bought a lot of books for $9.99 - $14.99. So figure 500 books at an average $10. So I've bought $5,000 in books. I know Amazon doesn't get all of it. I like to think they get a good chunk cause I want them to stay around for as long as I'm around.
    I remember Crown(e) Books. The sold heavily discounted books and went out of business. Stacey's and a bunch more are no longer around.
    I wish Amazon great good fortune cause I can share in that by getting the reading material that I love so much.
